Performed Great!! Seems like a great league / competition gun. I currently own a PK 380, XDM .45 and the Glock 17 9mm...
The glock is the most fun to shoot and shoot rapidly. Fairly accurate. I didn't go with targets or anything. Just wanted see if I could figure the jamming problem. Next time I'll go with targets, note pad and different grains of ammo to try and figure what it likes the best.

Good news your Glock is working now and that it likes WWB for cheaper practice ammo. It must be slightly hotter than the Federal Champion (which does work in my four 9mms).

Ah ha, Walmart's WWB is a little hotter! So now you know how low you can go.

9mm 115gr FMJ:
Winchester White, Muzzle Velocity: 1190 fps Muzzle Energy: 362 ftlbs
Federal Champion, Muzzle Velocity: 1125 fps Muzzle Energy: 323 ftlbs

Of course after 1000 rounds your Glock might loosen up enough to run the Federal too.



It's a little harder comparing the Federal and Winchester 40S&W at Walmart since the bullet weights are different. Both of these work great in my Glock 22 and 23.

40S&W Winchester USA40SWVP FMJ, 165gr, Muzzle Velocity: 1060 fps Muzzle Energy: 412 ftlbs
40S&W Federal WM5223 FMJ, 180gr, Muzzle Velocity: 985 fps Muzzle Energy: 388 ftlbs

That's good to know that Winchester White Box is a little hotter than Federal Champion. Quentin, comparing the two .40 rounds wouldn't less foot pounds of energy mean the load was weaker?

I suppose you could say the Federal 40S&W is slightly weaker but 180gr. @ 985 fps and 388 ft/lbs is respectable. For example the original FBI 40S&W load which still is very popular with LE is 180gr. @ 990 fps and 391 ft/lbs. Of course it's a JHP thus better suited for self defense.
